Private Shoot

A different kind of private shoot

Most of my photographic work is based around observation and capturing people in real situations so as to tell a story. As a result many people now approach me to shoot them in a similar style, as they like the authenticity of the images.

Before a shoot

We’d meet or talk on the phone to discuss what you would like. For example, do you have a particular use in mind? Is this to be a gift for loved one? The more I understand what you like, the better the shots I can make for you. After deciding whether you would like a studio or location shoot (or even both), all that remains is to organise a date of when you would like to be photographed.

During the shoot

I will show you the photographs as we go along. I think’s important for anyone to see in which direction the shots are going and so that they can feel comfortable and relaxed.  I’m not a photographer who relies on photoshop to ‘get you there’. You’ll be able to see the results as it happens. Towards the end, we’ll sit down and review the shots together over a tea/coffee. Based upon final your selection I will work on these images (if needed) and will later send you the final retouched images to you via email with a sescure download link. More images are available possible at an additional cost of €30.00 per image.

Customised Prints and other formats

Photographs are licensed for personal internet use only. If you would like to buy additional print(s) of any of your final images please contact us here to specify your requirements. Prints can be offered in a variety of different sizes. In order to help you understand the size and proportion of your intended print please refer to these illustrations to build up a mental image how a print’s dimensions might match your current surroundings.


All prints are hand printed to order to ensure optimal quality and the maximum lifetime of the print. Wrapped in tissue paper, prints are sent out in a strong cardboard tube(s) for worldwide delivery by FedEx. All images are printed to order (unless otherwise specified) and therefore delivery times can be one week in Europe and up to 2 weeks for the Rest of the World. Multiple prints on the same order will receive a discount – please ask here for more information.

Some common questions and answers…

How long would you recommend?

Normally between 1-2 hours is fine. In other cases you can book longer sessions, depending on what you would like to achieve. If you are unsure about how many hours / days would be suitable simply fill in this form here. That way, I can properly assess what you would like to do and see what amount of time might be appropriate.

How to best prepare for your shoot

To get the most from your shoot I’d always recommended that you bring alternate clothing. That way we can shoot 2 different looks (e.g. casual/lifestyle and business) so you can get the most variety from your session. Depending on the weather, we can also shoot either indoors or outdoors using professional lighting if desired.

When can we shoot together?

After any online purchase you will be contacted within 24 hours to organise a convenient date / time for your commissioned portraits. This will either be by phone or email, so please make sure to fill in all your details on the information page once you have made your purchase. If you need to change your details or add any extra information you can fill out the form again here.

If you have any other questions about a private shoot please check out our frequently asked questions page or ask me here.

Looking forward to shooting with you.

Mark Esper.
